New Retina iPad mini Priced at $399
Check out the new iPad mini
As rumored, the refreshed iPad mini delivers Retina display and absorbs some of the remarkable new internal components that make the iPhone 5s and iPad Air so powerful.
Starting at $399 for 16GB, (the first-gen iPad mini falls to $299), the Retina iPad mini offers up just as many pixels as the full-size iPad Air. If you crunch the numbers at home, that means the iPad mini gives us a higher pixel density on its display than the full sized iPad (the new iPad Air).
The iPad mini is powered by the A7 chip and is approximately 4-times faster at CPU tasks than the first-gen mini. It's also 8-times faster at graphics-related tasks.
Through it all, the new iPad mini still offers 10 hours of battery life.
The second-gen iPad mini as well as the iPad Air will be available in time for the holidays, although pre-order and launch dates haven't yet been confirmed.
As expected, the new model comes in silver and white, and space grey and black.
